Sometimes, but more and more they are using natural gas if they don't burn coal. Most now have the option to switch back and forth. Paper mills use it from time to time, too, but I have not delivered any #6 oil to a power plant or paper mill in a couple of years.

Lately, we have moved a lot of #6 oil to the Gulf for trans-shipping to China.
